I suppose I could chime in here…

My first vehicle was a 74 Dodge Half ton that we bought at a forest circus auction and yes it was that putrid green color, 318 with an auto tranny. Did a lot of camping out of that over the next few years and ended up selling it to help pay for a CJ5 because I got tired of getting it high centered all the time.

My old man had a 69 Ford Half ton bought new in 69 and scrapped it in 1987, 302 and a C4, it had pretty much rusted out and was falling apart.

Grandfather had a 68 Dodge 318 between the seats and 3 on the tree that he bought new in 68 and my father still has it. It still runs and drives and is in decent enough shape I may inherit it one day we’ll just have to see.

Guess I grew up in these things and see myself returning there one day as my wife and I are contemplating the whole realm of the Sprinter van……….

You need to post the link please. That 80s Westy roof looks good on there.

Last post was June 1, asking $20k

http://charlestonwv.craigslist.org/cto/3842572337.html

Looks clean though, I look for a 4x4 van weekly and this popped up on one of my many searches. No connection to seller I'm not even sure where Robson is. Buyer beware as always.

It's definitely a good looking vehicle...

I think it's worth 20k. I wouldn't buy it, but I'm sure someone will.
